How does the ODBC driver transfer data between an application to MSSQL Server 2005?
Is it serialized?
I'm trying to send data between SQL Server 2005 & MS Dynamics 4.0 but I suspect my data is altered by the ODBC driver in between.
Its sent as a wide-character string to SQL server -- i.e., a SQL query batch. No transformation needs to take place. The return data is structured in a protocol called TDS.
I believe if you are using the ASCII functions of the ODBC native client it gets upscalled to wide-character.
Look at the date formats on the 2 servers, you may have issues with localisation/regional settings
